Yeah, I think I'm making yet another one of those long entries. Enjoy.
( In which I discuss religion and evidence.Collapse )
On a totally different and thoroughly non-religious note, procrastination is a curse. But I WILL do this work, I WILL, I WILL, I seriously will. It's going to happen. What's more, I'm going to try to enjoy it. Really, some of this maths is truly fascinating. Some of it's horrible and I hate dynamics, but some of it is good. Projectile motion is fun and easy and I love anything involving matrices. I honestly do not understand why some of this isn't taught in lesser maths classes because it's really not that challenging. If anything, Maths B is harder than C. Or maybe we just have a better teacher. I'm sure the reason I'm no longer top of maths is because of Mr Capper's bad teaching in grades ten and eleven. I was flying high at the top at the end of grade nine, but then I got Capper, and despite the fact I studied majorly, I still got bad marks and he'd scowl at me, thinking I was being lazy or something. Grr. OK, so I didn't really study majorly at all, but I did some study and did all my work in class, which was a foreign thing to me at the time and FELT like a lot! And teachers need to learn to write theory up on the boards rather than examples. I need the theory, it really helps, and we've been taught so little of it that when I look in the textbook, what it says makes little sense. I'll read theory of stuff I can do in my sleep and feel baffled.
Hm, I'm sure I had one other long thing to say. Oh well, this can end here then.
